If Pardew Bails Out before Pre-Season Training Then Players Will Follow
Alan Pardew may have lost the faith of many supporters as last season progressed (or should that be regressed?) but one thing that seemed to remain was a rapport with his squad.
Last summer numerous members of Pardew’s first team had talked of how important it was for Newcastle to strengthen on the back of that fifth place and so last season they knew fine well that the failure to do that was by far the main reason for last season’s disaster, with nobody to cover once injuries hit in key positions.

Alan Pardew has made clear he intends to fight on but once the reality of Kinnear’s presence hits home in day to day life then it is more than likely even Pards will find the situation impossible and have to leave.
If this happens with a sizeable period of the transfer window remaining then I believe Pardew’s departure would almost certainly be the straw that broke the camel’s back for a number of key players.
Yes they say they love the club and fans but players are players and being at a shambles like our club could well prove too much for some.
Players such as Krul, Santon, Cabaye and others would have to be thinking what is the point and I for one wouldn’t blame them.
